About the Program

Description of Content

The Master's program Geodetic Engineering started in October 2017 and is dedicated to students with a BSc in Geodesy and Geoinformation or related topics, such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Geosciences, or Electrical Engineering.

It is a full-time program taught entirely in English. The standard period of study is four semesters, including the Master's thesis. The program offers three profiles, covering the main research fields of our institute:

The student will choose one area as a major and a second as a minor topic. Depending on the student's interests, the curriculum allows the student to focus almost entirely on one main topic or a broader range of topics.

Graduates will be equipped with skills and tools to recognize and solve geodetic engineering problems. During their studies, they will participate in current research  projects. The Master’s program provides an entry qualification for PhD programs.


Course Objectives

The program provides our students with scientifically founded expert knowledge, skills, and methods to enable them to work in industry, academia, or government. It enables them to recognize and solve engineering problemsand therefore prepares them to translate research questions into activities and projects. The program provides an entry qualification for PhD programs.
